I put on 10 pounds of fat in 6 weeks due to travel, kids being out of school, and not applying myself with nutrition as well as exercise. I need to get back on track with body fat loss goals and eating correctly for higher energy. I feel lousy when I eat processed foods and drink alcohol. What is the quickest way to get back on track? ~ Tracy
Focus on cleansing billions of fat cells with the right nutrition approach including daily consumption of organically raised protein and dietary fat choices so the body can use more stored fat as fuel. Even short periods of bad food choices screw up fat cell function and make it very difficult for the body to mobilize stored fat as fuel even when in a caloric deficit! The sooner you get back on track the better as fat storing momentum builds quickly during periods of poor eating and reduced activity.
Trans Fats Get Stuck in Fat Cells
Trans fats were designed to extend shelf life which is why they are in most packaged goods that you would grab on the run. Those same ingredients lodge in the fat cells and make them much larger over a short period of time. Foods fried in corn oil can increase the number of fat cells which means your fat storage warehouse is much larger. Years of even occasional consumption of bad food choices can increase the body fat storage capacity immensely especially if there are genetic risks for obesity.
Flexible Fasting Benefits
Fasting for periods of 12 to 16 hours have shown to help with the fat cell cleansing process in addition to many other body fat loss benefits. Consider that 8 of those fasted hours can be while you are sleeping and a gradual approach can be taken with fasting protocols. For example not eating following dinner until lunch time the next day can easily stretch to 16 hours to support peak levels of fat burning in combination with other proven strategies.
Are you Insulin Sensitive?
A wild summer of eating did more than just screw up fat cell function as insulin sensitivity was also negatively impacted. As a result the body over releases the most potent fat storage hormone every time that you eat. Flexible fasting can also improve insulin sensitivity to normalize hormonal levels perhaps more quickly than other approaches pending many factors including the food sources.
Give Fat Cells What They Want in Large Quantities
Fat Cells by nature want good dietary fats found in organic food choices such as grass fed beef. Grass fed cows have an ideal ratio of dietary fats and do not have toxins that can negatively impact fat cell function. Raw nuts, extra virgin olive oil, cage free whole eggs, avocados, grass fed steaks and other organic items can provide fat cells with what they want on a daily basis.
Assuming the right conditions are created with flexible fasting, essential fatty acid loading, food choices, macronutrient cycling, proper exercise and rest- the fat cells can take in good materials from the diet and purge out larger junk to be burned as fuel. The collective shrinking of the fat cells is one of the important ways that humans lose body fat!
